2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee updates and pricing

Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk water

THE introduction of the new Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk headlines the changes to the 2017 Grand Cherokee range, but all models have mechanical revisions and fresh front-end styling, and many have new equipment.

As before, the range starts with a 3.6-litre petrol V6, which gains a new variable valve-lift and valve-timing system that tweaks power from 210kW to 213kW and lowers fuel use by four per cent.

There’s a more efficient eight-speed auto for the diesel engine (and 4x2 petrol V6) and electric power steering across the range. The 3.0-litre turbo-diesel V6 remains the default engine across the range, which still includes the ‘hot-rod’ SRT with its potent 344kW 6.4-litre petrol V8.

Grand Cherokee finally gets full ANCAP safety rating

Interior upgrades include a new touchscreen and a new gear shifter, while an ‘acoustic’ windscreen and side glass brings lower cabin noise levels. New safety equipment includes lane-departure warning, while new convenience features include park assist.
